Sean Smith worked as a computer specialist for the U.S. State Department. He was assigned to the U.S. Embassy in Libya and found himself stationed at the make-shift consulate in Benghazi. On September 11, Sean was killed when the compound was overrun by Muslim terrorists along with U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.
The first reports out of Libya blamed the slaughter on a spontaneous protest by local Muslims over a garage produced video that insulted Mohammad. While the Obama White House and State Department clung to the video protest story for two weeks after the attack, almost everyone else in the world knew within days of the attack that it was a planned terrorist attack and had nothing to do with a protest.
On September 14, President Obama spoke at a ceremony to welcome home the remains of the four victims. At that ceremony, Pat Smith, mother of Sean, had a chance to speak with President Obama, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and other members of the Obama administration. They all promised to tell her the truth about what happened to her son and how he died. She even cried on Obama’s shoulder as everyone kept telling her to trust them and they would tell her as soon as they knew anything.
A month later, Pat Smith is still waiting to hear what happened to her son. No one from the Obama administration has given her the slightest hint of how her son died. She feels betrayed by Obama, Panetta, Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. They all promised to tell her and none of them have kept their promise. Pat feels that they were merely placating her out of duty and really could care less about her and how she feels.
Obama wastes no time in producing an advertisement apologizing to Muslims for offending their sensibilities, but when it comes to American citizens and family members of our service men he does not seem to care about them. Obama will bend over backwards and twist himself into a pretzel to try to appease Muslim sensibilities, but when it comes to offending the American people he seems to always side with those who are offending. The only war Obama and his administration can seem to muster any energy to fight is the war on America and her values. I am so glad that the election is only days away.
